Wannabe stage stars are wanted

Has your child got what it takes to be a TV star?

A successful Doncaster stage academy is holding auditions for youngsters, boys and girls, aged five to 11 who think they’ve got what it takes for a career in front of the cameras.

Pupils who have studied singing and acting at Doncaster’s Starstruck Academy have gone on to have parts in cult soaps such as Waterloo Road, set in a northern secondary school, and popular comedy dramas starring big names like Victoria Wood, as well as a number of television commercials.

Samantha Smith is now on the lookout for youngsters for new dramas, films, as well as long-running Yorkshire soap Emmerdale and commercials.

Confident children with character are what’s required, according to Sam, and no experience is necessary.

The auditions to join the singing and dancing lessons at the academy and associated children’s theatrical agency will take place on September 10. Contact Sam on 07734964648 or starstruckacademy@hotmail.com
